Which Distribution is Easiest? Announcements
By GeneralZod , Section Help! []
Posted on Tue Jan 18, 2005 at 12:00:00 PM PST
I know scoop can work on almost any installation. I've installed it on a very early version of Mandrake and Irix. In the past, installation hasn't ever gone very smooth for me. I've got a box (800 Mhz Pentium with a gig of ram) without an OS that I'm going to run scoop on and not much else. Out of the box, which distribution is most scoop-friendly?

Fedora Works Nicely (none / 0) (#1)
by hillct on Wed Jan 26, 2005 at 12:22:38 PM PST

I've installed Scoop on everything exscept a toaster oven and I find that Fedora works nicely. With the most recent installation I did using Fedora Core 2, I was actually able to isntall all the perl dependencies from RPMs, although I compiled apache because it's my habit to do so. --- CTH

Provided you stick to a relatively mainstream distribution, you should be able to get scoop up and running just fine. If you like rpm and RedHatisms, then go with redhat/mandrake/fedora. If you're a big apt fan, then go with debian. If your favorite text editor is a pushbutton and an LED, then Slackware is the way to go. Et cetera.

perl is the part that seems to trip most people up, so consider using a custom perl install. What I do is to install an up-to-date perl distribution in /usr/local, then set everything up to point at that. It's definitely possible to make it all work with distro-provided package management tools, but quite frankly, since perl already has decent package management, there's no need to limit yourself to what is provided by a distribution.

For whatever length of time that you adhere to a moderately wide distribution, you ought to have the capacity to make them work. In the event that you like rpm and RedHatisms, at that point run with redhat/mandrake/fedora. In the event that you are a major fan well-suited, at that point run with Debian. In the event that your most loved content tool is a push catch and a Drove, at that point Slackware is the approach. And so on. Perl is the part that appears to bumble a great many people, so consider utilizing a custom Perl establishment. What I do is to introduce a Perl distribution refresh in/usr/neighborhood, at that point set everything up to point to that. It is absolutely conceivable to make everything work with distro-gave bundle administration instruments, yet to be perfectly honest, since Perl as of now has great parcel administration, there is no should be constrained to what is given by a distribution .
